The Volvo XC90 was first presented at the Detroit Motor Show in 2002. This mid-size luxury crossover SUV by Volvo Cars shares the P2 platform with the 1st generation Volvo S80 and several other large Volvo cars. The Volvo XC90 is currently the top-selling Volvo model in the United States. It was also rated as best selling Volvo worldwide in 2005 with total 85,994 XC90 vehicles sold. The Volvo XC90 appeared on the market for 2003 model year with the 2.5T and the T6 trim levels. 2.5T was propelled by 210 horsepower 2.5L turbocharged inline-5 engine with 236 ft·lbf of torque and 5-speed automatic transmission, co-developed with Aisin. The T6 trim offered a 2.9L 24 valve twin turbocharged inline-6 delivering 272 hp and 280 ft·lbf of torque, mated to a GM-sourced, Volvo modified 4T65EV/GT 4 speed automatic transmission. The 2.5T trim was front wheel drive with optional Haldex Traction all wheel drive system available, while T6 was available with AWS only.
In 2005 the 4.4-Liter V8 engine by Yamaha was added to the lineup, delivering 292 hp at first, then after an upgrade it delivered to 311 horsepower and 325 ft·lbf of torque. In 2003 XC90 won the North American Car of the Year award and Motor Trend magazine's Sport/Utility of the Year title. The vehicle was restyled in 2007 and received new front and rear style and the interior was revised. The 235 hp 3.2 L straight-inline-6 engine replaced less powerful inline-5 powerplant in the base model for the US market. The upgrade was presented to the public at the New York Auto Show, in April 2006. Volvo scheduled the second generation XC90 to be presented in 2010, yet this was cancelled and the car is to receive the facelift to its parts and stay on the market until 2012.
The Volvo XC90 has not become an exception in Volvo’s high safety standards. The Volvo XC90 patented unique frontal structure features crumple zones, and pre-determined positions for the engine and other ancillaries during a frontal impact; the WHIPS system cradles the entire body of the occupants when they are jolted during a rear end collision. Moreover, the front part of the vehicle is designed so that pedestrians would be deflected upward, rather than appear underneath the vehicle in case of the impact. The ROPS system in the roof construction utilizes the ultra high strength steel to prevent a collapse in the passenger cavity in the event of a roll over. The system is closely associated with the Roll Stability Control (RSC), DSTC, and SIPS systems of Volvo to prevent and ultimately minimize effects of a pending accident. The IIHS awarded the Volvo XC90 their Top Safety Pick award.
The Volvo XC90 burst onto the scene and quickly gave every other crossover in its class a run for the money. That's because its smooth, almost elegantly shaped body and other auto parts in conjunction with a roomy yet practical interior layout separate it from the masses. There's enough performance and efficiency to get by on a rainy day if need be, but ultimately, it's the whole package why drivers have fallen in love with this sporty machine.
